One thing I've always wondered is about how many %
of trident,minuteman, etc. nuclear warheads could the PVO with A-135s,S-300s and
S-400s destroy in a full scale US nuclear attack.
Dont worry about Tridents ..U.S is busy trying to create jobs for half of its population..Tridents will not fly off
the ground becase their will be no officers with paid salaries to launch missiles.. he he
Besides Russia is developing very complex(ultra complex) arrangements of air and missile defenses as detailed by Victor.
These are the reasons for taking long time to develop whole set of technology.
The latest report suggests Almaz-antey has shifted its focus on S-400 upgrade ,
dont know the name though of (S-400 upgrade).The work load of different technologies developed at same time
is dramatically affecting the time taken to come out with prototypes.
A-235 strategic missle defence is also in the works. It is ahuge system. Developed in complete secrecy.

Will it enter service in the PVo about the same time as the armata enters service in the Russian army?
A long range missile(offcial designation unknown) S-500 missile did go into testing in 2013 .But it will be integrated with s-400 , thats what was reported in interfax.
77N6 and 77N6-N1 being developed now, I suspect these are not the actual names.PLease not
the below quote from Forum member .. the latter half ..
The 77N6-N and 77N6-N1 missile for S-500 is claimed by Izvestiya
and I would take any news from it with a truck load of salt except for interviews
